Car boot finds

A couple of weeks ago I went to a car boot fair by myself (!) and bought a few things. Here they are!

This woolly deer top cost me 20p and will be perfect to chuck on over a long sleeved top in this gorgeous Spring weather we are having!

A nice bright red coat (I won't wear it with the red trousers though!) which cost me 50p. Again nice for Spring :)





And my favourite find - a pot of pencils. I actually just wanted the pot (it spins!) for my desk but she wouldn't sell them separately. However the pencils will come in handy so I'm not complaining :) I got these for £5.50 - she wanted £8 but I bartered her down.

I love car boot sales!

Me too, can't wait for them to start around our area again! Lovely finds and those pencils are great! One day I hope to find one of those pencil sharpeners with the windy handle like my teacher had on her desk!

Great finds! Not sure I would have paid that much for the pencils and pot though! I have to wait another few weeks for our local bootsales to start up again... so quite jealous you got to go!

Hiya, I love your blog. I'm off to a carboot in Clitheroe to sell some old tatt this Sunday (and to my boyfriend's horror, probably buy as much old tatt to take home with us!)

Which carboots do you tend to go to? It's so hard finding nice ones that aren't all about bulk buying bleech and wagon wheels...

Thanks again for a great blog!
